I had the best time, Alison driver/tourguide was amazing. Wonderful experience
This was just what we were looking for -- a nice wander through the Black Isles with an experienced and informative guide. Gary not only knew lots of interesting facts and stories, but he gave us tips about what to look for in each of the places where we stopped. His enthusiasm was infectious. Another great Viator tour!
Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the true country of the Scottish Highlands. Our coach driver was the greatest. He was very informative on the history and was very thoughtful and accommodating to everyone. Would recommend this tour to anyone. Very long day but worth every hour of it. Five Star tour and driver was great with resteraunt recommends.
The trip was wonderful. Alison, our tour guide, was exceptional. Very knowledgable and loads of fun. We all had a great time.
Had great tour with small group. Allison did great job and adapted to suit the group to make tour even more enjoyable. A couple of extras added to the experience. Dolphins had the day of but this did not detract from the trip
Only 3 passengers on the bus so driver adopted a flexible itinerary, which suited us all.
Malcolm was a kind, patient and excellent host. Interesting commentary on the local areas covered. It was fantastic fun seeing the seals and dolphins at the Black Isle and the visit to the distillery was fun too.
Very good tour guide and fun experience. Will recommend to Anyone.
There were only 4 of us on the tour. It was terrific. Thanks, Ian !

Our driver Kevin was spectacular! the weather was great and he was so knowledgable about so many different parts of the areas we saw. the tour guide at the distillary was so-so, but all in all it was a lovely day. We appreciated the scenic drive actually the best. And the dauphins were really active the morning we were there.
Best part was the distillery tour. The rest was very interesting with some lovely scenery and an excellent guide
This was an interesting tour. The guide was knowledgeable and the sites were worthwhile
The best part of our tour was our guide, Alison, who was witty, knowledgeable, and caring about the people on her tour. Plus, we received glimmers of sunshine for the first time, an omen that followed us to London the following day. Great trip. Would recommend it for anyone who has never been to Inverness before.
It's a four star rating.

We enjoyed the trip overall, but felt that it was a bit too long for the different experiences included. Our guide was nice and if you have a whole day to spend in a van soaking up some great views, it was ideal.
We did not know the town was at least 45 minutes from the dock and we missed our tour.. called but was told they could not wait for us
Beautiful countryside and with just one day we did see alot. However there was little commentary provided from our driver or helpful hints as to what exactly we were seeing. At several of the stops we were told to walk around a bit and be back in 45 minutes. Learned on our own.
The only reason I give this tour one star is because the tour of the Scotch Whisky Distillery was very, very good. Nice tour guide and very informative, I learned a lot of interesting things about making whisky.
However we saw not even a hint of any bottlenose dolphins at Chanonry Point.
The sleepy village of Cromarty was so sleepy nothing was open so we waisted time just walking around doing nothing until the van was ready to move on.
We did not go near the banks of Lock Ness, instead was taken to a nomey grabing building with a lock ness display we had to pay extra to see and a gift shop, but no where within sight or walking distance to Loch Ness or Urquhart Castle. The driver/tour guide was very nice, when I complained he pulled the van over to the side of the road so I could see Lock Ness from a distance and take a picture.
I do not recomment this tour. It was a very big disappointment.
